a monopoly of than oil industr could anything break it? at a time when the government was breaking up a monopoly in oil, why did it sanction a monopoly in the telephone industry? would antitrust laws still apply in a new economy whose major product is intellectual property? monopolies -who's in control? with the help of our economic analyst richard gill, we'll find out on this edition of "economics usa." i'm david schoumacher. we like to think of our economy as one that runs on competition. for instance, we can choose the brand ofasoline we buy. if one station sets its prices too high, thene can simply go across the stet if one station for a lower price.o high, if enough drivers pass the high-price station by, sooner or later it goes out of business. of course, if in order to attract business a station sets its prices too low and can't cover costs, sooner or later it'll go out of business, too. but what happens to prices if one company, or one person, controls all the gas stations? that was what the country faced in 1890. the company was standard oil -- the man was john d. rockefeller

strictly the government and that that's causing- you know, they get along well in their private lives, but the other thing enters into it and causes the whole situation, the havoc and the killing and such. >> and i've experienced that personally in a number of instances, that a group of people, a person who's different from me who in the group setting i'm not supposed to get along with- and maybe you even had this as a kid; i remember this- you know, in the group setting, that group hates this group. but one on one, you find yourself out in the backyard playing, you're okay, you're good friends. it's something about, you know, we're working on this idea of unity here and belonging and how that is a fundamental human desire, but when it seems to be concretized around a specific group that forms its identity over and against the other- you know, the negative other, then we get into a situation where any amount of violence can occur. i think about reinhold niebuhr, a great book, i believe something like, moral man and immoral society, that when we bind together in a collectivity, we have

an anarchist, a follower of pierre-joseph proudhon, who wanted to do away with central government and create a classless society of free individuals. individualism and realism were closely connected for courbet, who felt that the artist could only realize himself through an immersion in the physical world. "i believe that painting is an essentially concrete art "and can only consist in the representation of real and existing things." "an abstract object does not belong in the domain of painting." courbet's technique, with its loose brushwork and sweeps of the palette knife, producing simple, very physical surfaces of thick oil paint, tangibly records his engagement with the physical stuff of this world. courbet's landscapes, with their simple, natural elements-- trees, crags, waterfalls-- emphasize the primacy of the eye over the conventions of academic art. placing himself and his art at the center of his political allegory, the painter's studio, he asserted the importance of the painter's individuality and his independence from the demands of the state and the artistic establishment. but h
that when you married, you promised to obey. and a wife must and always be governed by the will of the husband. please, reverend. spare me the sermon. this donation is important to him and i'll stand by him. you'll get your check. your obedience is exceeded only by your boundless charity. not quite boundless. there are a couple of conditions that i want you to agree to before i hand this check over. oh, and what are those? one is that i want you to convince my husband to drop his plan to send mary ann to that school of yours in oklahoma. you would deprive your only daughter of her chance to learn at the fountain of scripture? look, i want her to get an education that allows her to make her own choices. now, if that choice includes you and your preaching, fine. i might not like it, but it's her choice. what is not her choice is getting carted off against her will to some school in oklahoma in this crusade of yours. i see. and you mentioned a second condition. yes. i want you to promise me that this will be the last money that you pry out of us. now, ellie, my ministry
states government taking our land away- this is our land, it's our constitution. so these ideas about land and religion are very, very volatile. i'm certainly not prepared. i mean, that's why i'm glad we have a robert moore, who's obviously well-funded, who started an institute at a prestigious place like the university of chicago to head up the parade, because i think someone needs to head up the parade. how you, you know, disarm the kinds of intensity about land we see in kashmir between the pakistanis and the indians- how do we disarm that? you know, we saw what happened in the serbian area- these are the tensions- and land is part of it; you know, land is part of it. but as we'll see when we look at the middle east closer, there's also that religious element, and to have really sat down, as you'll see in the next class, and talk with on-the-street muslims about the threat of the western secular values- patterns of action- upon the islamic way of life, you can't blame them for the anger that they feel; it's truly a threat. we've heard in the media that the united states has been ca
if there is palestine and arab government and everything is arab, it will stay like their religion, and i don't belong here and i'm very sure of that, you know. >> well, you mentioned that you have three daughters. we've obviously seen some tensions between the arabs and jews. for instance, if one of your daughters wanted to date an arab boy, would that be acceptable in your eyes? >> it's one of those questions that you hope doesn't happen, and in my case, i doubt very much it would happen. but if you want to be very hypothetical or theoretical, it would not be acceptable in my eyes. one of the reasons that we moved to live in a jewish society in a jewish state was to live in a place where the threat of intermarriage is very, very small. and besides the fact that my kids all got very strong jewish and zionist upbringings, it would be the furthest thing from any of their minds in any event. that's not to say that in their social life or in their academic life or in their sports life they wouldn't associate with arab teenagers. my youngest daughter, who's now in twelfth grade, plays basketball, and she
of clowns and puppets, this play makes fun of ambition, nobility, idealism and government. its hero, if ubu can be called that, is a grotesque monster who mishandles everything he touches and everyone he knows. where traditional drama seriously deals with plots against a ruler or the downfall of a kingdom, ubu goes to work with water pistol and kazoo. where traditional drama shows the whispered conspiracy of a queen inciting her husband to greater power, ubu roi shows a blowsy-looking, overstuffed woman hurling obscenities as undignified as any uttered by her husband. and where traditional drama carefully builds a plot from opening scene to final resolution, ubu roi jumps around in time and space, deliberately episodic, showing that plays should be constructed to match a world that doesn't make sense. at first glance, you may be amused by this comedy and yet startled to find that it has a place in the history of the theater. the date of its composition, 1896, helps to explain why ubu roi is important. it was new, different and shocking. as you watch it, keep that date in mind: 1896, when ub
of desperation, just barely eking out an existence under the oppressive machinery of an exploitative government ? or were their lives fairly rich ? did they have things of beauty in their houses ? how did they live ? did they have a variety of foods stored in their houses ? were they scrinched into scuzzy little spaces, or did they have some open areas and a comfortable life ? that's what we're working on. keach: sometimes an archaeologist's search is helped by accident. in el salvador, a bulldozer digging a foundation for a grain silo stumbled upon an old house. could this be the evidence that sheets was looking for ? people in the area had seen well-preserved floor, good artifacts on the inside, thatched roof collapsed down onto the floor but perfectly preserved. they all thought it's a recent house under a recent volcanic eruption. when i came here, i thought exactly the same thing. but being curious about things, i decided i'd like to know what it dated to. so pulling out my trusty trowel and scraping along the floor, right along here, i found some pieces of pottery. but the pieces of potte
. in the late 1970s, brian henderson was working at a mission hospital in new guinea when the chinese government asked him to be a consultant on cancer. dr. henderson: premiere zhou en lai had bladder cancer. in the course of his illness, he became interested in cancer and actually was a mover in getting a national register of cancer cases. a million barefoot doctors in every village in china recorded every cause of death. and then, the chinese, using relatively unsophisticated computer technology made maps of the distribution of cancer. they knew where concentrations of cancer victims were located, but not why. why was there more stomach cancer in certain parts of the country... more liver cancer in others? that was what dr. henderson was asked to find out. dr. henderson: there was a friend of mine working in taiwan at the time who published an elegant study showing that hepatitis b virus looked like a common explanation in taiwan for liver cancer. so we did studies with them, collected blood from about 10,000 people, tested the blood back here in the united states, and followed them and demons
